While it isn’t necessary…we love bottle feeding our puppies. It’s nice to give a hard-working Mama a little break, not to mention a delightful experience.
To us bottle feeding is an essential part of development. Making the human bond/trust/connection even stronger. We find it makes a big difference in the eventual temperament of the babies and it’s absolutely vital. Every one of our babies is bottle-fed at some point and it’s an amazing experience.
